Location description (1957)
Duke Rock (45 fm.). The ground inside the shallow Eastern Entrance to the Sound was formerly much as described under Queen's Ground. It has, however, been greatly affected by Admiralty dredging operations carried out earlier this century. In the 1950s, near the Duke Rock Buoy, a useful dredging ground exists, producing stones and clinkers with a fairly rich epifiora and fauna. Some interesting compound ascidians have been obtained here. The workable ground is limited by submarine reefs.
